felted shoulder bag kit

felted shoulder bag kit (£18)

You knit a bag (its very simple!) then felt it in your washing machine (exciting!) then decorate it with buttons and threads.

Keep it simple or elaborate - it is up to you! We have lots of tips and ideas on how to finish your bag here.

This felted bag is suitable for a beginner and still interesting for a more experienced knitter using double knitting wool from Isle of Harris Knitwear Company. There is a choice of three colours - a green tweed effect, a black tweed effect and a dark raspberry pink. The tweed effect is important! Once felted it really brings the colours out.

The kit contains all you need to make a lovely and unique felted shoulder bag including -
  • 2 x 50g ball of 100% pure wool
  • 5.5mm knitting needles
  • buttons, yarns, threads & knitters sewing needle
  • full instructions & how to knit guide

The Woolly Brew Felted Shoulder Bag kit is £18 and includes all you need to knit, felt and embellish your own bag. It is available in raspberry pink, green and black

  1. Hi - My daughter and I visited your lovely shop whilst on holiday in Scotland at Easter - and after knitting lots of 'just cushions' I decided to have a change and move onto other things -so I purchased your knitted bag kit - which I have now complteted - and I am very pleased with the result. A few of my work collegues have now got the knitting bug and are enjoying learning to knit together! Still cannot find any groups or classes near to us in Chesterfield Derbyshire but will keep on looking.
